APP Waterproofing Membrane 1 Metre by 10 Metres Long.
The APP membrane, short for Atactic Polypropylene Membrane, is a special waterproofing material that is manufactured from Bitumen. They comes in rolls. Each roll measures 10 metres by 1 metre and covers an area of 8.7 m². With proper workmanship, the APP membrane is a very efficient and durable waterproofing material used in most constructions. It is a common waterproofing material used on concrete flat roofs (which are still roofs) or roofs with low pitch. Apart from concrete roofs and low pitched roofs, other areas of application are concrete gutters, basements and retaining walls.
- WHY USE APP MEMBRANE? Benefits of APP Membrane
Some advantages of using the APP membrane is that it has enhanced bitumen performance which helps in UV resistance. It is not affected by rapid changes in temperature and is still efficient during extreme hot and cold temperatures. APP waterproofing membranes also provide superior tensile strength while maintaining critical flexibility – even in the coldest environments which make it hard to crack
- What are APP Waterproofing Membranes?
An A.P.P Waterproofing Membrane is a special waterproofing material made from Bitumen commonly used on concrete flat roofs or roofs with a low pitch.
- How are APP Waterproofing Membranes packaged?
APP Waterproofing Membranes are packaged in rolls. Each roll weighs between 30kg to 50kg, measures 10 meters by 1 meter and covers an average area of 8.7 m² (considering that they overlap). Their thickness ranges between 3mm and 5mm. They can either be plain which means they have no granule coating or with granules which means they have a mineral finish.
Where are APP Waterproofing Membranes used?
APP Waterproofing Membranes are used for waterproofing of low sloped roofs, (also commonly referred to as flat roofs), basements, retaining walls, and concrete gutters.
Can I use APP Waterproofing in areas that experience high temperatures?
Yes, APP waterproofing membranes are made from specially treated bitumen which makes them stronger and with better climatic changes impact resistance. The APP membranes used on exposed surfaces such as balconies and rooftops also have a granules mineral-like coating to enhance their UV resistance qualities.
How are APP Waterproofing Membranes applied?
The application method is through a heated blow-torch making the surface bonding stronger and consistent.
Do you require to cover the App after installation?
We recommend covering of App waterproofing membrane with interlocking tiles or screed if the area is trafficable (people walk on the area).
Do you offer installation services for APP waterproofing membranes?
Yes, we have a team of qualified APP Waterproofing Membrane installers. We also offer a 15 year product and workmanship guarantee for projects we have installed.
How much does do APP Waterproofing Membranes cost?
We can easily calculate the cost of APP waterproofing required for your project. You can contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on +254 701 636 662
Can I walk on the APP covered slab after installation?
No, the APP waterproofing membranes covered roofs are not trafficable. Should you need to have heavy traffic on these roofs, then they should be covered with interlocking tiles.
How do they compare with other liquid based waterproofing chemicals?
Unlike the APP waterproofing membranes, most liquid waterproofing chemicals do not perform well when exposed to direct sunlight. Liquid waterproofing chemicals are therefore mostly recommended for internal use such as bathrooms and kitchen areas that will not be exposed to the harsh UV Rays.
